Mike Iaconelli and Hatcams will be teaming up for 2011 to give fishermen a unique peek into the life of a professional bass fisherman. Mike Iaconelli is mostly known for his signature scream after he catches a fish. It’s obvious that Hatcams LLC chose Iaconelli for his great enthusiam, I think they have picked a great guy!
Plan to watch Mike Iaconelli’s fishing show “Going Ike” with the new Hatcam technology, expect some solid fishing tips along with the unique first-person-point-of-view. You’ve never experience a fish show like this before, the excitement will be steady throughout the show.
It’s such a coincidence I stumbled across this article, because I’ve been looking for a way to record video footage off my own fishing boat. I was thinking about getting a big tripod and mounting it in the middle of my boat, but after researching Hatcams, it’s obvious that Hatcams is the way to go.
It’s kind of funny because the technology used isn’t really that advanced, the breakthrough is the screw mounted on the hat. It allows you to screw in any thin/light weight camcorder on the brim of the Hatcam hat. I have to say this was a great idea by the Hatcam innovators, but after seeing what they have done, I think any outdoor enthusiast could take their own hat and install a custom screw on the brim of their hat.
Still though, I think I’m going to go with the Hatcams hat for safety reasons. The design looks pretty solid and I don’t think there’s anyway for the screw to pop out. Which could be devastating if you lose a $200+ camera. Just imagine the video footage you can capture with the Hatcam. You’ll be able to capture stills of fish jumping out of the water. If you’re a hunter you’ll be able to capture your kill shot. Depending on the camera technology, you might be able to get some slow motion footage.
When I think of it, the Hatcam could be used in the car hobby as well. Wouldn’t it be neat to see a first person view of drag racing down the track? Although I’m not sure if the Hatcam would be comfortable to where inside a vehicle, you might hit the roof of the car with your camera. I guess it depends how tall you are, how long your camera is, and how tall the roof of your car is.
I already know what I’ll be saving up for this spring. I wanted to get a muskie fishing pole and reel, but a flip camera and a Hatcam hat sounds a lot more fun. I think fishing this year will be a lot more interesting, that’s for sure!!!
